practical guide to designing a data center from inception through construction. The fundamental design principles take a simple, flexible, and modular approach based on accurate, real-world requirements and capacities. This approach contradicts the conventional (but totally inadequate) method of using square footage to determine basic capacities like power and cooling requirements.

I have found, during my work with massively complex system environments, that
there are a few top issues that can affect configuration management. Here are some
of them:

s Set the explicit disk to use when installing via JumpStart server.

s Check for all patches!

s Read all of the release notes.

Appendix A

Managing System Configurations 179

s May need to access to a 10.0.0 network for the Sun StorEdge network FC switch’s

initial configuration.

s When using Fibre channel: be aware of hard address vs. boxid vs. target id.

s When using the Sun StorEdge network FC switch, do not forget to “apply” the

changes that were made, as necessary.

s Set port types on SAN switches before making zones.

s Use ports 1, 4, 8 .. to connect to Servers, if possible, for better performance under

some conditions.

s Be sure to check the /etc/system file. Do not blindly roll things forward,

e.g. priority paging.

Conclusions

Simplicity and automation are important keys to configuration management. While
the configurations are getting more and more complicated these days with the
myriad of hardware and software that are needed, keeping the configuration
management organized is key. The simpler the process and the less human
intervention that needs to be done results in better configuration management.
